In a bid to cultivate the next generation of safety professionals, BCSP has forged a meaningful partnership with the AGC Education and Research Foundation since 2016. This collaboration goes beyond traditional certification efforts; it extends a helping hand to aspiring safety practitioners who are pursuing their education and aiming to make a mark in the construction industry. Since 2016, BCSP has funded 31 students with nearly $70,000 in scholarships. These scholarships not only provide financial assistance but also serve as a testament to the commitment of both organizations to invest in the development of capable and well-educated safety practitioners.

BCSP doesn't stop at just funding scholarships; they take it a step further by sponsoring the travel of these scholars to the AGC Annual Convention. This inclusive package covers flight expenses and hotel stays, ensuring that the scholarship recipients have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the industry's latest trends, innovations, and networking opportunities. By facilitating their attendance at such a prominent event, BCSP and the AGC Education and Research Foundation empower these future safety professionals with valuable experiences and insights that go beyond the classroom.

BCSP's journey from setting technical competency criteria to actively supporting the education and development of future safety professionals is a testament to its unwavering commitment to safety. As the organization continues to evolve, it not only upholds its legacy of certification but also embraces initiatives that shape the future of safety practices. Through partnerships like the one with the AGC Education and Research Foundation, BCSP is not just ensuring the present but investing in a safer and more secure tomorrow for industries and communities alike.
